GARNER, Iowa – A man accused of stealing from his grandparents is pleading not guilty.

Anthony James Fickel Schoneman, 23 of Garner, is now scheduled to stand trial July 11 on charges of 2nd degree burglary, 1st degree theft, and two counts of drug possession.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office says Fickel Schoneman illegally entered his grandparent’s home in May 2017 when they were away and stole over $10,000 in cash, collector coins, a firearm, ammunition, and prescription pills. Investigators say the burglar obviously knew where those items were located in the home.

Fickel Schoneman was arrested on March 27 and entered a not guilty plea on Friday.
